NextWaveSTEM Professional Development for Teachers
Drones, robots, and 3D printers are being used today for a variety of purposes, and these emerging technologies will continue to become even more integral to our society in the years to come. Our Professional Development Workshops are for teachers who are interested in using drones, robots, and 3D printers in the classroom to deliver STEM learning that inspires and sparks students’ curiosity, builds critical thinking, and introduces students to coding skills that are becoming vital as careers continue to shift towards STEM-related fields.
Using robots to Create Engaging STEM Learning Experiences for Students
Participants will build foundational knowledge of how robotics can help students to deepen their understanding of STEM and the world around them. The workshop includes an orientation to the mBot robot and mBlockly software; training on pedagogical strategies for using robots in the classroom to build 21st century skills; suggestions for making robotics relevant across a variety of curricular areas; and a supported, collaborative planning session in which teachers work together to develop practical plans to implement learning with robots in their schools.
